I haven't been doing a very good job at dealing with it today. Every time I left her sight, to go to the bathroom, make lunch, whatever, she screamed!! :

I use the sling a lot.
I bring the high chair or saucer into the kitchen while I cook.
I sing while I leave the room for a really short time.

Glad to hear I am not the only one going through this Luckily Leyton LOVES Landon so I usually ask him to go sing or play with his little brother so I can go to the bathroom quick. The seperation anxiety has hit hard this last week, yikes!

Yeah, I didn't mention the "have an older sibling bring a new toy out" method because poor xkoliex can't do that yet.

I sang a "Elliot eats avacados" song to Handel's Halleluja last night. It worked for me to get Elliot's avacado and water cups on the table. Phil thought it was blasphomy (sp?!). Elliot thought it was a riot.
